In a small, sleepy town in northern India, three children gaze out onto a rain-drenched street, waiting for a most unusual guest.
Who is Younguncle?
Was he really, truly kidnapped by monkeys when he was little?
Can he really make a noise like a sewing machine?
Will he ever Settle Down and Get Married?
When he finally arrives, Sarita, Ravi and the baby know instantly that their lives will never be the same again.
Meet India’s newest and most engaging literary creation.
The Adventures of Youngucle and His family will Entertain, Delight And Amuse Readers of any Age.
One of the best children’s books I saw this year, Younguncle Comes to Town has none of the self-consciousness you often find in adults who write for children, very plausible dilemmas and a delightful style.
Enormously entertaining stories, well-written, crackling with understated humour and grounded in good value without being preachy.
